One of my Gouger street favourites.

My friends and I used to frequent East Taste but because there's always somewhere else to try along Gouger, we neglected our old faithful for a long time. We thought we'd go back for another go for food that had never disappointed us. And again, it didn't! It was quiet inside which was nice for a... read more

I was in the Adelaide CBD and all I wanted was wontons to takeaway. I googled wontons and up came East Taste Cafe. We went there and read the board and there were no wontons on the menu. The lovely Michael came out and helped us with suggestions. He told us about the specials as well then let us decide.... More

Here we were a group of four hungry guests looking for some good tasty food which didn't burn a hole in our pocket. Well we found what we were looking for at this informal restaurant. They were very busy and the service was okay but they could have done with one more staff member. Once our order was taken the... More

Went for dinner with friends, the food was awesome with service to match. We had 4 entrees, 4 main meals, rice and 1 drink each, $68 per couple, great value. I have never had kangaroo in an Asian restaurant before, it was delicious, in the selection of entrees we had, shallot rolls they were absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend this... More

We weren't going out for any particular reason, but stumbled into East Taste and were treated to good valued food and good service. The menu is not overly expansive as a lot of Eastern cuisine places can do, so selection of our food was simplified. The food followed the order quite promptly and it was a fresh and tasty as...

Huge plates of food at great places are served quickly with a friendly smile. Service is attentive and the special chicken chilli was really good. Would recommend for families and friends and hungry people.

We get a trip from McFuzzlebutt's Manchen (blog) that this was a great place for a late dinner and headed there after a late sporting match. Service was lovely and friendly, food came quickly and was very tasty. The duck was awesome!

Been here many times now, and the one thing you can say about East Taste is that they are consistent. Good food each and every time we've been, and one of the few on Gouger St to stay open well into the night. Their shallot cakes are always excellent as an entree' as is their tea smoked duck for mains,... More
